By-Sexual are a legendary visual kei punk band from Japan, first formed in 1988. Within just two years, By-Sexual were among
one of the most successful first-wave visual kei bands around, and were praised for their unique pop punk style, making them a
jewel among visual kei fans. By the mid 90's, the group had a much less punk sound, and instead developed a more mature,
alternative-fronted style. The group initially split in 1998, due to a dramatic decrease in sales, but reformed in 2011 to help the
Japanese tsunami efforts. Not too long later, the band (minus frontman Sho and drummer Nao) announced that they would
return for good, under the new name, By-Sex.
